Windows: Named service user for puppet agent
I am trying to get puppet agent service to work in windows. Using LocalSystem as account user works; but I need puppet agent service to be run under a named account for our windows AD.
I used the installer to specify the Domain Account name; the installer grants
Logon as service rights and adds the user to the local
BUILTIN\Administrators group - so far so good.
However, the agent is always run with non elevated privileges it seems; it tries to create the directory
$::system32/.puppet and does not have the permissions to do so.
Question: How do I best run Puppet Agent as service when I need network drive permissions for many of my manifests?
